Victoria Hagan launched her eponymous interior design firm based in New York in 1991. She has been awarded many of the country's top design honors, including Architectural Digest's Top 100, and is regularly featured in magazines. A frequent speaker on design issues, Hagan has also made television appearances on Martha Stewart and Oprah. In 2004, she was inducted into the Design Hall of Fame. Marianne Hagan is a longtime devotee of design and architecture. As a journalist, she has written articles for the arts and cultures magazines BlackBook and Room 100. As an actress, she has appeared on stage, television, and film. She is also Victoria's sister. On working with Victoria, she says, "Writing and researching this book gave me an open-window view into my sister's talent and vision. It was a magical vicarious tour." A graduate of Duke University, Marianne calls New York City home.
"Celebrating her firm's 20 years, Victoria Hagan: Interior
Portraits (RIzzoli, $50) captures the decorator's signature
style - equal parts elegance and comfort - with projects that
include Nantucket cottages, prewar apartments, and a Jackson Hole
retreat." ~Elle Decor (October 2010)
"Known for restrained and refined rooms with cerebral atmospheres and strong architectural foundations, Hagan merges traditional aesthetics with the requirements of modern living. Her crisp, uncluttered designs are not only visually appealing, her clients - who include Revlon chairman Ron Perelman and comedian Conan O'Brien - find them supremely peaceful." ~Elle Decor (June 2010)
"For a look at home decor of today, Victoria Hagan, Interior Portraits (Rizzoli, $50) shows contemporary domiciles (stately SoCal residences and N.Y. aeries) - all with the designer's sophisticated hues and refined sense of space." ~California Style
